Finger Lakes Distilling is pleased to announce the release of a new whiskey, McKenzie Bottled-in-Bond Wheated Bourbon. This spirit is made from local corn (70%), red winter wheat (20%), and malted barley (10%). It meets the strict requirements of the Bottled-in-Bond Act: the product of a single distillery from a single distilling season, aged a minimum of four years, and bottled at 100 proof or 50% alcohol by volume.

By law the bottled in bond is at least 4 years old, but some of the whiskey here is substantially older than that. The rich and creamy texture is perfect at 100 proof. With the sky high demand for wheated bourbon, I don't expect us to be able to keep this in stock, but it would be unfair to compare it with Weller or Pappy. The real story here is in the curation of exceptionally high quality grains grown in the bread basket of New York.
The distillation ends at a slightly lower proof to preserve more of the inherent wheat and corn flavors in the final product. The quality of the whiskey is superb. It's dense, rich, smooth as silk, and wildly flavorful.
